Teething Problems with Adwords

Firstly can I just say what a fantastic site you have here! I only found it yesterday and what a great find!
I hope no one takes this the wrong way but it's kind of comforting to know that I'm not the only one having problems!

Anyway, I have three problems with adwords and I wonder if anyone can help.

I have three campaigns and each one has a seperate problem.

Firstly, on one campaign all my adverts are continually being disapproved for having an 'inaccurate display URL'. However, the display URL is exactly the same as the destination URL! I thought this may be because I had forgotten to activate masking with the forward but I have since activated this and still the same happens! I have e-mailed google help but no response as yet.

Then problem two. On a seperate campaign all my ads are 'pending review'. But this status hasn't changed for nearly two days! On my other campaigns the ads are approved or disapproved normally within an hour at most! Has this happened to anyone else?

Then lastly on my third campaign, a similar problem to the last one, accept all the ads are 'under review' and so arent running at all! This has been the case for about twenty four hours now!

Any advice on any of these issues would be greatly apprciated!

1st,
Are you sure your display URL is the same as the page that the visitor lands on?
EG: http://www.abc.com ( Display )
and http://www.abc.com ( Destination )
also, Google only allows one domain per adgroup.

2nd and 3rd, It seems you are not the only one to wait for the almighty google..
